"XPLC (cross-platform lightweight components) is a component system with goals of providing extensibility and reusability both inside and between applications, while being portable across platforms (and languages) and having the lowest possible overhead.
I am looking for an early peer-review of its design itself.
My idea went through multiple iterations of prototyping and getting myself to think outside the box. After some quite complex scheme, it became clear to me that I wasn't going to turn around the whole compiler and linker situation. It's been quite a while (at least 20 years) that better solutions existed and are now tried-and-true, but the good old compiler/linker duo is still there, seemingly to last. So my flow of thought went around this."
